Floyd "Money" Mayweather, Jr. beat Saul "Canelo" Alvarez on Saturday by majority decision to win the WBC and WBA super welterweight title belts.

Floyd "Money" Mayweather, Jr. beat Saul "Canelo" Alvarez by majority decision on Saturday.

The fight, held at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, was simply one-sided in Mayweather's favor. Two judges had him ahead by at least four in the score cards, 117-111 and 116-112. The third judge, C.J. Ross, saw it 114-114.  

Nonetheless, the victory more than improved Mayweather's already-stellar record to 45-0 with 26 knockouts, he also earned Alvarez's WBC and WBA super welterweight title belts. 

Mayweather, who earned a cool $41.5 million, spoke about his victory after the fight, per Felipe Leon of FightNews.com. 

"It's all about skills. I came out tonight and showed my skills. But a true champion like Canelo can take a loss and bounce back. My dad had a brilliant game plan. I executed that game plan. I could have pressed it and got the late stoppage, but tonight experience played a major key. Tonight was just my night." 

Alvarez, who suffered his first loss and fell to 42-1-1 with 30 stoppages, marveled at how intelligent and great Mayweather is.

"No doubt he's a great fighter, a very intelligent fighter. There was no solution for him.

"I didn't know how to get him, it's extremely simple. He's a great fighter, very intelligent. The frustration was getting in there, but he's a great fighter. We tried to catch him."  

According to the Associated Press, Alvarez was an unofficial 165 pounds when he got into the ring although he made the 152-pound limit during the weigh-in. The extra weight apparently caught up with him as most of the punches he unloaded either missed or glanced off his opponent.

Mayweather used great speed and timing to frustrate Alvarez with repeated left jabs or right straights. In spite of his win, he still downplayed it and said,"I cannot say this is my best performance," per the New York Times' John Eligon.   

He also praised Alvarez, confident that Canelo will become a champion again. 

"This is still one of the pound-for-pound best fighters in the world today. Before long, he'll be champion again."

After Decades of Being the Same, Cup Holders Are Drastically Changed to Finally Make Sense - Beverages Are No Longer Held from the Bottom in Stationary Cylinder Openings
The Maksimatic Spill-Preventing Cup Holder uses centripetal force to prevent beverages from spilling utilizing a 360 degree swiveling joint which allows the cup holder cylinder openings to tilt up to a 27 degree angle full-circle. No other cup holder in the world achieves this let alone is designed to do anything like this. The Maksimatic is as reliable as the laws of physics themselves and changes a design used for decades. This seems to be the next logical step in cup holders.
